Canebrake Pool is a Jarrah-Marri forest located on Crossing Road in the Rapids Conservation Park of Australia’s South West.
It has a beautiful freshwater river, picnic tables and seating, public toilets and plenty of shade courtesy of the lush forest.
Near the picnic tables there are some wooden steps that take you down into a shallow part of the river that has been lined with hessian and gravel stones.
The river is home to the unique species of critically endangered Marron, found only in the Margaret River, called the Hairy Marron. The water is so clear you can see them!
The Marron come right up to the steps of the pool but swim away if they think you are getting too close.
Canebrake is only a 30 minute drive from Busselton making it a great place to visit or a swim, bush walk, picnic or go canoeing.
If you would like to stay longer there are seven designated camping sites, suitable for a small van, camper trailer or tent.
It is free to enter Canebrake park but if you would like to camp there the fees are$7.50 per adult, $2.20 per child,$5.50 per concession card holder.
